Synopsis

The Reindeer Girl by Holly Webb

Lotta loves to hear Great-grandmother Erika tell stories of her childhood, herding reindeer in the snowy north of Norway. She dreams of having such adventures, too. Little does she know that her wish is about to come true. One night, just before Christmas, Lotta wakes to find herself in the world of her Great-grandmother’s stories. Soon, she finds herself drawn into a magical world, travelling by sledge, herding reindeer from the snowy mountains to the summer pastures. Then Lotta comes across a reindeer calf and its mother who need her help and then the adventure really begins…

About the Author

Holly Webb

Holly was born and grew up in south-east London, but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying Latin and Greek, and eventually to reading Classics at university. She worked for five years as a children's fiction editor, before deciding that writing was more fun, and easier to do from a sofa. She started writing several years ago while working as a children’s books editor. She has written over ninety books including the Animal Stories, My Naughty Little Puppy and Maisie Hitchins series for Stripes Publishing. Holly has also written In The Clever Little Kitten for World Book Day and a sequel to The Secret Garden. Holly Webb lives in Berkshire with her husband, children and three cats.
